If you’re following many fitness social media accounts at the moment, you would know that it’s all about having a round peachy tush!

You have three gluteal muscles: the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus. Apart from looking good, strong, well-developed glutes also help improve posture, relieve lower back, hip and knee pain and enhance your athletic ability (e.g

I have recently returned from an amazing three week holiday in Switzerland and France. As always, during a holiday I enjoy a few more less-beneficial foods than normal (think chips, ice cream, chocolate and pastries!) so, of course this causes fat gain. I never feel regretful or upset because I know as soon as I get back to my normal healthy

This is a great little workout to do when it’s a beautiful day and you don’t want to be indoors! Or, as in these photos, maybe you’re on holidays so you don’t have access to your usual gym. Make sure you do a little warm up before you get into it. The workout is a mixture of body weight resistance training and high-intensity interval

Relaxing-on-beach

Do you ever get to that point where you’re feeling run down, stressed and tired? Your motivation and energy levels are not where they usually are. You’ve lost your usual zest for life and spring in your step. Instead of bouncing out of bed, you slowly wobble out thinking how stiff and sore everything feels. You’ve been permanently tired for days and

Resistance Training Workout – Sport Specific Circuit for Snowboarding

In Whistler, Canada, my favourite snowboard location so far. In Whistler, Canada, my favourite snowboard location so far.

I love doing outdoor activities. Being outdoors in nature has always made me happy and feel most like myself. One activity I enjoy doing outdoors is snowboarding. There’s something magical and peaceful about being in the massive isolated mountains. Snowboarding is also possibly my husband’s biggest

Resistance Training Workout – Total Body Beginner Circuit

2014-12-20T11:18:10+00:00 20 December 2014|Categories: MOVE|Tags: , , , |

This is a great workout for a beginner, or for someone who is experienced but has perhaps had some time off from exercise and is wanting to get back into training (that’s me after pretty much every holiday!) Choose relatively light weights because you are doing the exercise for a whole minute. As well as engaging and overloading most of the muscles in your body, you will also get a cardiovascular workout from these circuits.

HIIT Workout – Total Body Tabata Workout

2014-12-12T11:05:49+00:00 12 December 2014|Categories: MOVE|Tags: , , , |

This workout involves alternating a cardiovascular exercise with a resistance training exercise. It delivers a lot of benefits in a short amount of time – a high calorie burn, improving your fitness and improving your muscle strength and tone. Tabata training is a type of interval training where you exercise for twenty seconds and then rest for ten. You repeat this eight times, which will take you 4 minutes. This is one round of Tabata; however, in the workout below you are alternating two exercises in each round of Tabata, rather than just the one exercise 8 times.

HIIT Workout – Total Body Circuit

Hello!

I am going to start posting my HIIT (high-intensity-interval-training) workouts. I do about two a week and I thought it would be good to post them on here, so that:

a) Other people (you, my blog followers!) can give them a go, and

b) I will have them all recorded in one spot so I can look back on them when needing some workout ideas!

Give the following circuit a go. I can guarantee it will get your heart rate up and work your whole body.
